    I remember SOny had an official kit for 199 bucks that came with preinstalled linux on a 80GB hard drive, I thought that was cool but this takes the cake.

    The only downfall is that you&#39;ll lose XBOX Live.. So I haven&#39;t done this yet, because.. I have like 11 months left for my subscription..

    Well, yup. But i&#39;m sure they&#39;ll figure out a way for you to undo the thing so you can play XBOX Live when you want to.

    Yes, I remember that aswell. I wonder if they still have that. Maybe on eBay.

    Sounds like an interesting thing to do to your Xbox. I may buy a Xbox one day just to do this.

    lol yeah but it&#39;s a cheap computer! If I want a linux box i&#39;d rather buy a used XBoz from ebay and run linux on it instead of buying a full computer.
